Level 2 Food Safety Manufacturing
Basic food hygiene training, or Level 2 Food Safety Manufacturing as its now called, has been around for many, many years. The accredited training, was originally built for food made in a kitchen, and it’s since been adapted (to some extent) for a manufacturing situation.
Today, we’re still using a basic food hygiene curriculum (or level 2 food safety manufacturing); that was originally designed for kitchens, and was written over 30 years ago. Food manufacturing and the associated standards have advanced dramatically since then. Although food safety continues to be (and always will be) our primary concern, we now need to include food defence and food integrity in our list of GMP requirements.
Time for change
At Techni-K we thought it was time to make a change.
So, we have developed a Level 2 curriculum, which is developed specifically for food and drink manufacturing. A curriculum designed specifically for each product sector. So that an operator’s training actually relates to their role. Training that’s suitable for today’s manufacturing world, which includes food safety (applicable to the specific product sector), but also include GMP and the new elements of GMP such as food defence and food integrity.
We believe there’s nothing like it on the market and this type of training is going to change the way we train our workforce in the future.
